We have been busy working behind the scenes as we launch Pacific Reentry Career Services. As we have been hard at work filing nonprofit paperwork, setting up insurance and planning all our programs fro job seekers and employers, we received word from the IRS that we were granted 501(c)(3) status.
So, what does this mean for Pacific Reentry Career Services? Having 501(c)(3) status officially makes us a nonprofit as recognized under the IRS tax code. This opens up possibilities for us to apply for grants to help fund the programs we create to get formerly incarcerated women into meaningful jobs that will help them rebuild their lives. It also means that all donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
We are also happy to announce the 2016 Reentry Solutions for Success Conference in Ontario, CA. The conference will take place October 19-20 and will be organized by the Federal Reserve Bank, the Orange County Reentry Partnership and other organizations. Stay tuned to our blog for more details. We hope to see you there!
